- Apple has installed moisture sensors (aka liquid contact indicators) in iPhones since the original version came out. If the sensor says there has been moisture damage, then you lose warranty coverage, so it’s pretty important that they don’t give false positives. How sensitive are these sensors?

- A friend of mine sent a link about Slingshot, an iOS app that essentially works like Snapchat - it lets you send and receive photos and videos that are automatically deleted once they are viewed. However, the app had already been pulled by the time I had a chance to check it out. What’s up? Why did Facebook pull Slingshot?

- I like My Photo Stream because it takes my iPhone photos and saves them to iCloud. What I don’t like is that it takes ALL my photos and does it immediately. That means all those photos of my fingertips, my feet, and my blurry cat are uploaded and I have to go in manually and delete them later.

- Since I’ve installed iOS7, I occasionally get random reboots, where the screen is just black with a white apple symbol in the middle. Has anyone else experienced this, and is there any solution to it? It doesn't happen that often, but it sure is annoying when it does.

- On all the other versions of iOS I’ve used before, you could just double click the home button, hold down the app’s icon in the app switcher tray and kill it from there. That doesn’t work for me in iOS 7. Anyone know what the new process to force close an app is, assuming you can still do it?

- With iOS 7, when I want to send a set of photos by email, I’m limited to sending 5 at a time. It’s not an issue most of the time, but it is annoying when it is. Is there a way to send more than 5 in a single email?

- I know there is the usual Steve Austine type general improvements - lighter, faster, thinner - but is there anything that really impacts the user experience that has changed? With iOS 7 running just fine on existing iPads which also have the same Retina display, would an owner of an existing iPad even notice a difference with the iPad Air?
